Android 4.4.3 KitKat coming to Nexus devices, fixes for unstable data connections, camera focus, random reboot issues, missed call LED problems, and more.
Rumor mills have been at work for some time suggesting that Google will soon release Android 4.4.3 KitKat update for Nexus users. It’s been much awaited for the reason as it’ll bring a set of fixes to Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
Last year, Google announced Android 4.4 KitKat along with the Nexus 5 in October. Sometime after the announcement of the Nexus 5, the Californian developers released the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Nexus 5, improving camera performance. The update was also pushed for the earlier devices such as the Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and the Nexus 7. Reports regarding the Android 4.4.2 KitKat issues began to circulate right since then.
Since Android 4.4.2 KitKat update led to a number of issues, it was reported that Google will bring the next update soon enough. It was also expected that Android 4.4.3 KitKat update will ideally put the bugs to rest.
While it’s likely for some time now, details regarding Android 4.4.3 KitKat update began to emerge last week. Apparently, it’ll bring fixes of the problems that Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 users have been reporting for the past few months.
Reports suggest that the update will contain a solution for unstable data connections, Wi-Fi auto-connect, data usage graph, enhanced camera focus and stray reboot problems. It’s also expected that it’ll resolve LED issues regarding missed calls and VPN related problems, and the bugs affecting the Bluetooth, as well.
Android 4.4.3 has been reportedly been in the testing phase. The testing only means that Google is truly gearing up for the new update. The current build KTU72B on a Google Nexus 5 was spotted recently that was complied on March 24th, according to the naming convention followed by Google.
As the update will bring a number of fixes, it’s likely to be a substantial update for Nexus owners. As the update is in the testing phase, it’s just a matter for weeks from now when Android 4.4.3 will be released.
